How to Save Money While Fighting Pests

If you’re on a budget, then ants, roaches, and other pests are the last thing that you need. Unfortunately, most insects don’t pay much attention to your finances when they choose to invade your home. Although you can’t control when an infestation happens, there are some great tricks you can use to reduce the cost of fighting them. Here are some of the top ways to save money on your next Combat purchase.

Fight Pests For Free

Another option is to take pest-fighting steps that don’t cost you a dime. While these tips cannot eliminate an infestation, they can curtail it, reducing the amount of bait you have to buy to solve the problem. A few simple precautions are a great way to save money.


Remove Food

It’s important to make sure that you are not making your home any more welcoming for ants and roaches than it already is. Always clean up spilled food and drink as soon as possible, and be vigilant about not leaving crumbs. Seal your storage containers tightly and cover your garbage can to make sure their food supply is cut off.


Check Firewood

If you have a fireplace, inspect all of your firewood carefully before you burn it! Old logs are a great refuge for insects, which may then hitch a ride into your home. Check your wood for pests before you bring it inside.


Clean Up Debris

Make sure that you keep dead vegetation from accumulating on your property. Cockroaches and ants love to inhabit dead leaves, branches, grass clippings, and other debris; make sure that you keep this debris away from your house. If you have a compost pile, put it somewhere that isn’t directly next to your home.


Remove Water

Watch out for moisture, since water is another thing that can attract ants and roaches. If you have any leaking plumbing, have it fixed immediately; clean up spills as soon as you can.


Shop Carefully

Last of all, be sure to purchase the product that best fits your needs; get the right formula for small roaches, large roaches, and ants. This will increase effectiveness and reduce the amount of money you need to spend. With a few simple steps, it’s easy to protect your pocketbook.
